Byron Hebert, author of Power Baccarat 2, hails from Detroit, but has lived in Las Vegas for many years. He taught math in Saudi Arabia while working there, has been fascinated with the game of baccarat for a long time. His book, published in 1999 and updated in recent years, is one of the most respected works ever on the game; designed for beginners and advanced players. In this episode Hebert offers tips to baccarat players, his observations about costly errors players have made, table etiquette, taking advantage of streaks, the importance of money management, and a comparison of mini-baccarat with the big table. Mickey Day, an ex-New Yorker with some very colorful language and as many stories about betting on sports or craps, lives in Las Vegas and has authored Plug-In Parlay Systems and Craps With Einstein. During his interview Day discusses betting little to win a lot in a variety of sports betting situations while offering every level (beginner to old pro) advice on shooting craps. This includes smart bets, keeping away from the "sucker" bets, avoiding bankroll destruction and applying discipline at the tables.
